Designer Molecules Set the Trend for Advancing Science
: "Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory are developing computational tools to rapidly design and build new molecular structures and screen them before synthesizing the real molecule.. This new computer software program, called HostDesigner, can generate and evaluate millions of new molecular structures per minute on a desktop personal computer. In contrast, building one new molecular structure by hand takes about 15 minutes employing the graphical user interfaces present in most desktop modeling software. " The focus is on ligands that bond to metals, which are important in environmental cleanup. 9:53:19 PM
